Rolling Road day @ Sitech Racing March 23rd 14′


Well, what can we say, a rare sunny day in March and we were headed through to Rosyth for a Rolling Road day at Sitech Racing, organised by a few folk on Facebook from the RS/ST owners clubs. We were up early and headed though to meet a couple of others at Eurocentral, then headed onwards to Sitech. We arrived fairly early and already the street was filling up with RS’s and ST’s on both sides, most of which getting washed and cleaned. The cars slowly but surely started taking their turns on the rollers, producing various different figures, we took a picture of the power board, although it spend more time being blown over than it did being filled in!

As it was also a BBQ day (which was a bit of a gamble for march) there was food being made for all the attendees and there was a decent spread of RS cupcakes and other goodies (cupcakes were lovely!) We spent the day watching the runs and taking pictures of all the cars, which kept steadily arriving, not all of which were of the Focus variety, one Sierra RS Cosworth showed up, which got a fair bit of attention (ours  included) and we believe its owner also had his Focus RS on the rollers, which produced 500+ BHP!! One of the guys in attendance (with the white Focus RS & Orange Decals) Brought his Dji Phantom Quadcopter along to get some footage from above, This is some bit of kit, and although it was windy, the quality of the footage is amazing! Once he has the flight skills mastered, this will be a very handy thing! if we could afford one for cruises & events then we’d get one in a heartbeat! You can see his footage on youtube HERE

All in, it was a great day out, some lovely cars, and the guys at Sitech were great all day long, offering advice aswell as doing the power runs, Its definitely somewhere we will be visiting again!

Police unveil new Mclaren, 0-60 in 3 Seconds!


  • The 207mph McLaren in police livery will be unveiled this weekend
  • Officers say the supercar will be used to raise speed awareness
  • ‘The car breaks the ice and gives the opportunity to get across the safety message – especially about dangers of excess speed,’ PC Angus Nairn said

Criminals might have to think again about attempting a getaway after police revealed their newest and fastest police car – a 207mph McLaren worth £240,000.

The specially adapted two-seater supercar – which can hit 60mph in three seconds – will be unveiled at a car show in Birmingham this weekend.

Although it is not practical as an everyday patrol vehicle, officers from the Central Motorway Group in the Midlands hope it will help to break down barriers between police and motorists.

PC Angus Nairn – currently starring in the ‘Motorway Cops’ real-life TV shows – said: ‘Everyone who see the McLaren wants to come and talk about it – it is an excellent way to get people to have a conversation with the police – and not end up with a fixed penalty ticket.

‘The car breaks the ice and gives us the opportunity to get across the safety message – especially about the dangers of excess speed.

‘The McLaren is a very powerful car with a top speed of more than 200 miles an hour but it wouldn’t be very practical as an every day police vehicle – there’s not a great deal of luggage space and it has gull-wing doors that opens outwards and upwards so you have to leave plenty of space when you park.’

The police-liveried car will be at the Autosports Show at the NEC in Birmingham this weekend before it goes back in the showroom.

The car was supplied by local McLaren dealers and sales director David Tibbett said: ‘We are delighted to help the police and their work.

‘The police-liveried McLaren has some extras on and would cost around £240,000.

‘We have sold more than 100 Mclaren cars since 2011 and buyers have ranged from company bosses to footballers.’

The car – a Spider 12C model – is powered by a 3.8 litre twin turbo engine which develops almost 600 bhp – six times the power of a standard Fiord Fiesta.

But the makers claim it still returns 25 miles to the gallon – providing it’s not driven flat out at its top speed of 207mph. 

England hero David Beckham has just taken delivery of a similar model to use in the USA.

Lanarkshire StreetCars’ Paul Walker & Roger Rodas Remembrance Cruise: Dec 14th 2013


Well, what can we say? Saturday 14th Dec will be one of the main highlights of 2013! It saw well over 1000 cars and even more people descending on Hamilton for Lanarkshire StreetCars’ “Paul Walker Remembrance Cruise” as a tribute to the recently deceased Actor and star of the Fast & Furious movie franchise, and we were there to see it.

We arrived at 6:40pm to what was an already very busy retail park with 100′s of cars parked and people wandering about, we parked up where we could find a space and got out for a look around. There were cars literally everywhere and a constant flow still arriving and finding spaces, all types, models, and makes of car were there, from the 80′s Ford Capri, right up to 2013 BMW’s, everything was covered, and not all necessarily were modified, just like minded car enthusiasts there to pay their respects.

As it approached the start time of 7:30pm it was absolutely mobbed, with the local police having arrived to direct traffic, They could not have been more helpful, and set themselves up at the entrance, directing the flow of cars to the rear overflow carpark, and when that also filled up, directing others over to the local ASDA carpark where they could park up and walk over. The police on the whole were very relaxed and understanding, infact they seemed genuinely interested in the cars, having posted on Twitter afterwards about the lack of issues and how smoothly everything was run.

Come 8:20, the majority of people did infact adhere to the 1 minute silence, which was signalled and ended by a klaxon horn, obviously with an entire retail park and 1000′s of attendee’s, it was never going to be completely silent, but there was a definite reduction in noise for that period.

Ten minutes later, the fun started.. the 8:30pm “minute of noise” with everyone tooting horns and revving engines, all you could hear was exhaust, popping and banging, dumpvalves wooshing, and horns tooting, what an awesome noise! Like nothing we have ever experienced before and something that will stick with us. We’re sure that the man himself would have been proud of the fitting tribute.

On the whole, it was a well arranged, well organised, and well executed evening, with everyone behaving themselves and proving that the stigma of “boy/girl racers” is more of an outdated stereotype than a true reflection of the car scene nowadays. We would like to personally thank Lanarkshire Streetcars, The organiser Chris, the Hamilton Police, and all the car clubs and individuals who travelled from far and wide to attend the event, it was an awesome evening!

A special Facebook page has been set up for uploading pictures and videos from the event, and this can be found at the link below, get on there and get tagging if you see yourself!

N/A Nonsense Racing’s Paul Walker Memorial Cruise

N/A Nonsense Racing hosted a memorial cruise in memory of Paul Walker, who recently was killed in a car accident, we were not in attendance, but however, have been sent this write-up..

N/A Nonsense Paul Walker Memorial Cruise Dec 2013

“Well what can I say about the 2Fife2Furious held at Kirkcaldy Promenade on Saturday 7th December 2013…. Out of this world!

On turning up and finding a parking space I looked around in complete amazement. Upon standing on the pavement watching the traffic crawling both ways, a van pulls up across the road, a man got out and opened the back and pulled out a trolley, to which unveiled….. flashing lights and candy floss.

In going for a walk along the promenade it became a sight of break lights and headlights from end to end with residents watching from their balconies as it became bigger than the links market. There were many sights to be seen; Santa driving a MG Midget, four turtles, superman, whole families, pensioners with walk sticks, young children running around.

So at 9:30pm the noise started the roar from cars, the different sounds as car horns went off, the popping and banging from exhausts. The 1 minutes of noise, which turned out to be 2-3 minutes of noise was something that makes your skin tingle and hairs stand up on the back of your neck. This was in the Remembrance of Paul Walker, may he rest in peace.

There would have been a couple of thousand cars in attendance from as far as north of Aberdeen and as far south as Carlisle there with around 4,000 people. The police were in attendance helping with the traffic, closing car parks as they filled up and keeping everyone safe. It was a great experience to see the police talking to the organiser and seeing them working together to make it a very successful event.

My congratulations and thanks to the organisers of this event in making it so successful. Also to the police in their co-operation with the event.”
